Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller, former Children's Laureate and multi-award winner. This is a fresh reissue of a much-loved story with a beautiful new cover. Toby Jenkins hates going to Redlands' Boarding - he gets called 'Jinks' and thinks he'll never make the top rugby team. But then, he meets Christopher who claims to have powers. Christopher promises Toby a miracle. When Toby goes fishing he crosses to the other side even though he knows it belongs to the villagers. The village boys catch Toby and beat him up, injuring his ear. Thus, the war of Jenkins' ear begins with all-out sticks and stones battles. Will Christopher be able to provide much-needed miracle?

Michael Morpurgo, born on October 5, 1943, in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, is one of the UK’s most beloved authors, celebrated for his outstanding contributions to children’s literature. A former teacher, Morpurgo’s storytelling prowess has captivated readers for decades, earning him the prestigious 2003 Children's Laureate award. His seminal work, War Horse, not only garnered critical acclaim but was also masterfully adapted into a hit play in London's West End and a Hollywood film directed by Steven Spielberg, amassing numerous accolades.

Morpurgo's dedication extends beyond the page. In 2006, he was awarded an OBE for his services to literature. Alongside his wife Clare, he co-founded the charity "Farms for City Children" in 1976, providing urban kids the invaluable experience of living and working on a farm. This initiative reflects his deep commitment to broadening children’s horizons.

Educated at the King's School in Canterbury and the London University Institute of Education, Michael Morpurgo's blend of educational background and humanitarian efforts continues to inspire and enrich the lives of young readers and their communities.
